Chloe Elise Opheim was born July 10, 1969 to Robert and Ina Opheim at the Community Memorial Hospital (West River Regional Medical Center) in Hettinger, ND.

Chloe spent her early childhood in Hettinger, ND until 1977 when her parents moved to the Opheim farmstead northwest of Lodgepole, SD.  Chloe started her elementary education in the Hettinger School District and finished it the Northwest School District – Lodgepole School.  She graduated from Bison High School in 1988, and continued her education at NDSU – Bottineau, receiving an Associate Degree from NDSU-B.

Chloe was active in 4H in her youth, as well as a variety of other activities, including Concordia Language Camps (studying Norwegian language), and private music lessons. She enjoyed crafting, stamp collecting, attending auctions, watching and reading mystery books/series, as well as other activities throughout her life.

Chloe worked in retail and in property management for others, but spent many years self-employed in direct sales whether in person or via the internet.

While having lived in Bottineau, Minot, Grand Forks/East Grand Forks during her adult life, she had called Dickinson home for the last 25 years.
